This site is a much needed preservation library of kink erotica. The moderator does an outstanding job of maintaining and updating this site. It truly is a labor of love her part. I find the art far superior as erotica than photography. Although thats fun too there is something about the art thats more stimulating to me. Maybe because photography is a newer art form. I bet theres some kinky cave paintings somewhere from 30,000 yrs. I enjoy the history of the work and its fun to know that our folks, grand folks and great grand folks had some kinky bent in their boudoir.
